I am making this map for several reasons. First, it is not easy, with no street names, to find places in Abidjan. So I wanted to make a map of a popular part of the city for Ex-Pats. Second, many Ex-Pats that live here spend most of their time across the lagoon in a neighborhood called Zone 4. Many don’t realize that there is a lot to do on this side of the lagoon, so in a way, I am promoting a part of Abidjan that many may not know about. Read more about this here on my blog! http://jsteendavis.blogspot.fr/2012/10/on-dit-quoi-one-cale-in-abidjan.html
I don’t know if I am an expert, but I know that if upon arrival in Abidjan someone had given me this map, I would have greatly appreciated it!
New arrivals in Abidjan, those of us who have been here but haven’t yet explored the 2 Plateau area…
I think it could be either digital or printed. Depends…. I think I would start with digital though.
For details, I would like to have information on the restaurants/hang-out spots, plus what to say to a taxi to arrive (this is key!)
I would like some ideas on how to limit what I include on the map. And how to make it so there isn’t too much info on the map, but just enough so everyone can use it.
